India was battered by Australia in the first ODI. Don’t let the scoreline of loss by 66 runs fool you because, in reality, it was much more comprehensive than that. India now faces a must-win match in this next ODI. It must win to try and get some ODI Super League points to its name and also to try and stay alive in the series.
Australia would be very pleased with its start. It was never really tested by India and almost all of its players had a good game. Its focus would be on keeping the intensity up and to not allow India a way back in the contest.
We think this match is going to be much closer than the first one as India will look to recalibrate its tactics.
Australia vs India 2nd ODI 2020 is going to be played at the Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney on the 29th of November 2020.
Australia’s top-3 were in excellent form during the first ODI and could have all get hundreds. David Warner and Aaron Finch combined for an opening partnership of 156 before Steve Smith came in and smashed the third fastest ODI century for Australia.
Yes, there were some dropped catches and some half-chances but the fact remains that all these batsmen got runs.
Australia is dominant when its top-order is firing because any potential weaknesses in the middle/lower order are not exposed. We also saw a deliberate ploy by Australia to start slow and to keep wickets in hand.
It is a smart tactic considering the fielding restrictions as batsmen like Stoinis, Maxwell, and Carey can easily score at 8-10 an over during the last quarter of the game. Marcus Stoinis went off in the middle of the first match, though, and so he may miss out in the next one.
Cameron Green or Ashton Agar seem like the most likely candidates to replace Stoinis because of their bowling abilities. We think Green is going to make his debut in this match since he is also a seam bowler like Stoninis.
Australia’s fielding was pretty poor, uncharacteristically, and that will be a focus of improvement. Mitchell Starc was also very wayward with the new ball but we think he will come back stronger in this next match.
Aaron Finch, David Warner, Steven Smith, Moises Henriques, Marnus Labuschagne, Glenn Maxwell, Alex Carey, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, JR Hazlewood.
It looked like India was still in IPL mode coming into the first match. Mayank Aggarwal got set and then threw his wicket away, Virat Kohli was being ultra-aggressive and taking unnecessary risks, Lokesh Rahul hit a full toss straight to the fielder, and Shreyas Iyer can expect a lot of short-pitched bowling after his dismissal in the first match.
We think a slight mindset change is all that is required. The batsmen looked good during the time they were in but they kept going too hard.
Maybe chasing 375 was a part of the problem but you still expect better from the Indian team nowadays.
Shikhar Dhawan and Hardik Pandya played very well to show that there is nothing in the Australian bowling that they cannot handle. Pandya’s ability to play as a genuine batsman was in question but we don’t think anyone is going to be doubting him anymore.
India’s batting will be fine but the real problem is its bowling. Jasprit Bumrah is going through one of his worst phases in ODI cricket where the wickets are just not coming. Mohammad Shami and Navdeep Sani were far too short and the consistency in the bowling was just not there.
Australia’s pitches are flat and offer nothing to the bowlers and so more planning needs to be done about the tactics. Sure, the fielding made things worse and we are hoping that will change but India’s bowlers simply did not create enough chances.
Yuzvendra Chahal had a poor game and Ravindra Jadeja was steady without being brilliant. Maybe picking Kuldeep Yadav as a wicket-taking option could be something that India could explore.
The balance of the team is a bit skewed up until Hardik Pandya begins to bowl and there is nothing much India can do to rectify it at the moment.
Shikhar Dhawan, Mayank Agarwal, V Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Lokesh Rahul, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, YS Chahal, NA Saini, JJ Bumrah.
We think batting first is going to remain the way to go in Sydney. The pitch was a bit slow and the same square is going to be used for the second match as well. This means that we can expect conditions to be a bit more bowler-friendly in this match. Batting first could be a big advantage.

The surface in Sydney saw a lot of runs being scored but we do believe that was down to the number of chances that both teams grassed. This is a surface that will get slower and offer more to the spinners in the second match. That could play into the hands of the Indians if they can get their basics right.
A score of around 300-320 should be seen as par batting first.

We think India is going to hit back strongly in this match. It is not going to be easy and the key remains to pick early wickets. However, we did see that India’s batsmen were comfortably scoring against the Australian bowlers and that a slight shift in mindset could bring big dividends.
India did not play to its potential and this is why we think there is huge room for improvement.
The value that you are getting by betting on India is also very attractive right now.
Bet on India to win.
The man is in brilliant form and we don’t think he is going to make the mistake of bunting a slow full-toss to cover again! Rahul is perhaps India’s most accomplished all-format batsman right now after Virat Kohli.
He is batting in the middle where he will get plenty of time to score runs as well.
There could have been four or even five centuries in the previous match pretty easily. The wealth of the batting talent in these two teams is so vast that you expect at least one of them to have a good day and to get to three figures.
Excellent odds for this bet we think.
Chahal is a very canny bowler and would have had at least two wickets in the previous match as well but Shikhar Dhawan misjudged a high ball. He is also likely to get more help from the surface in this next match and so this is our favorite bet for this match.
